Social Media Evolves So Must Our Efforts

“LGBT youth continue to face extraordinary obstacles in their day-to-day lives whether at school or online, but the Internet can be a valuable source of information and support when they have no one or nowhere else left to turn to. As social media evolve, so must our efforts to serve LGBT youth to ensure their safety, health and well-being.” - Dr. Eliza Byard, GLSEN’s Executive Director

Video Games Can Support Queer Youth

"I wished I could have just been myself and honest about being a queer geek. … Games were my only escape for me. They allowed me to live in another world … having a team with me as we stormed Booster's Castle in Super Mario RPG or defeating the evil Porky in Earthbound … really was magical." - Matt Conn, Co-Founder of GaymerX
